Femme Book Club December: Feminism for the 99%

December 17, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Join Mack’s Backs Books in Coventry to discuss Feminism for the 99%: A Manifesto by Cinzia Arruzza, Tithi Bhattacharya, and Nancy Fraser on December 17th at 7:30pm. We know you are busy this month but this manifesto is less than 100 pages so we hope you can make it!

What it’s about:
Unaffordable housing, poverty wages, inadequate healthcare, border policing, climate change–these are not what you ordinarily hear feminists talking about. But aren’t they the biggest issues for the vast majority of women around the globe? Taking as its inspiration the new wave of feminist militancy that has erupted globally, this manifesto makes a simple but powerful case: feminism shouldn’t start–or stop–with the drive to have women represented at the top of their professions. It must focus on those at the bottom, and fight for the world they deserve. And that means targeting capitalism. Feminism must be anticapitalist, eco-socialist and antiracist.
